    Also note that *this* Catherine le Strange is not listed in the family pedigree... it is doubtful that she is a dau. of Roger Strange (d.after 1505) and Anne Heydon who died at the start of the 16th century. That Katherine married Hugh Hastings! Also see the will of Roger Strange (d.after 1505).
    Visitation of Northumberland only call him "Roger Strange" ... doesn't attempt to connect him with Hunanston, Norfolk.
